How would the worst NHL teams fare in the Olympics?

Due to the fact that the players on regular NHL teams are used to playing together and national teams players are not (some teams only have a very few days of practice together) IŽd think that any NHL team would be up to the challenge and have a fair chance at Gold.
To prove my point just look at the fact that the Swiss team quite often beats teams like Canada, Russia, Sweden or Finland. This is not just pure luck or because the players are undervalued, but because they have more experience playing together. They play tournaments like the Skoda cup or the Arosa Challenge as a preparation for the WC or the Olympics.
